UPDATE: The White Sox announced Saturday that Farquar is “stable but in critical condition,” having suffered a brain hemorrhage.


A scary moment occurred on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field after Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Danny Farquhar completed the top of the sixth inning against the Houston Astros.

The White Sox released a statement that Farquhar passed out in the dugout, and was attended to by the team’s medical personnel and on-site EMTs. He regained consciousness and was taken to the hospital for further tests.

The good news is that — as Adam Hoge’s tweet says — the decision to take Farquhar to the hospital seems to just be a precautionary move.

Farquhar, 31, has a solid 3.88 ERA in 271 2/3 innings pitched. He allowed two earned runs in 2/3 of an inning on Friday.
